Easily save a copy scanned PDF on your device locally or to other storage locations.

 

Now you have an option in Adobe Scan on Android to save the PDF locally or to other locations like third-party cloud storage. The option appears once you scan the document and save it to the Document Cloud.

 

The options to save the file to other locations than the Document Cloud are:

 

Copy to device: It saves a copy of the file on the device locally that you can access anytime.

 

  • In the Adobe Scan application, go to the Home icon on your device to navigate through the scanned documents list.
